Let’s just say he was the man about town, whom nobody liked.
Reasons, you ask?
Could be many!
He was too smart for his own good!
Too darn cute!
Oh gosh, was he rich!
Or may be… he was none of this!
Who cared! He was just a man about town, whom nobody gave a s**t.
Then there was me.
I am ordinary, if you must know,
Just another girl in town.
But I collected puppies.
Lost, helpless, homeless puppies.
I brought them home, washed and gave a bed,
Till they grew strong enough to bite the very hands that fed.
But does it ever stop me, no sir no!
So I had to be fixated on him, for he is one of them, a homeless, loveless puppy.
And after him I go!
He feels like a glass to me, I can see him through,
With all his ugliness, lies, wicked thoughts, somewhere buried deep some goodness too.
I can read his words, before he spells them for me,
We are now closer than we ever did.
Do you think its love,
Who am I to say,
For me he is another puppy, I wish to care.
Did I mention his lies, lies that flowed like stream,
He spits them out, even when, there is no need.
I tell him, you can be honest,
remember? I can read.
but why, why doesn’t he change.
How long will I last, with these deceiving Games?
I repeat to myself, I can handle this,
I have seen dogs before,
But looking at his puppy eyes, with drooling teeth,
I am not so sure.
I knew he was different,
But boy, was I wrong,
He wasn’t poor weak puppy,
He was a wolf,
Wolf, too strong.
He did not bite,
didn’t touch my caring hands.
He ate me alive,
Never leaving a single bone.
